Blasphemy & Offerings

If I disobey god to carve his image in ink upon myself, is that blasphemy or worship? Is it both?

I love this question of whether disobedience out of devotion is sacred or blasphemous or both, and I just wanted to thank you so much for bringing it up in your own context–I don’t quite know how to put into words just yet how profoundly this question has shifted the webwork of my faith, but I find myself feeling as though all my previous understandings of my god and my devotion are short-circuiting because of it.

It also leaves me feeling pretty foolish that for a devotee of a god who is defined by his very rebellion, I had never considered what role my own disobedience to him might play.
